not often >> ronald reagan. "social security has nothing to do with the deficit. social security is totally funded by the payroll taxes levied on employer and employee. if you reduce the social security, that money would not go into the general fund to reduce the deficit." ronald reagan. >> texas congressmember and former republican presidential candidate ron paul has given his farewell speech to the house of representatives. and more than 45 minute address wednesday, he assessed his own legacy, blasted u.s. policy at home and abroad and posed a series of questions. >> why cannot people understand that were always destroys wealth and the ready? why is there so little concern for the executive order that gives the president authority to establish a kill list, including american citizens, of those targeted for assassination. why is patriotism thought to be blind loyalty to the government and the politicians to run it, rather than loyalty to the principles of liberty and support for the people. real patriotism is a willingness to challenge the government when it is wrong. >> congressmember ron
's daughter, understood conservatism or ronald reagan, the alcoholic son that grew up in middle america who actually believed, like i believe, like a lot of conservatives believe that if you want to help everybody, if you want to help the 100%, what you want to do is you want to fight hard for their individual free am do doms and unshackle them from regulations from high taxes, from a centralized state, and that's the best way to move forward. we can have a debate over whether that's right or wrong. the problem is, we didn't have that debate this time because mitt romney's view was such an insulated view of a guy who grew up rich and grew up in this insular world where his father ran car companies and was governor of michigan. >> this is a pivot point for the republican party. i think bobby jindal probably said it best. you have to turn -- you have to marry conservatism and pop y lyh populism. we helped the little guy because that's the america dream. it's not the opposite as far as entitlements and victims. that's a pivot point. and the republicans that get it are going to be part of a new
as ronald reagan got put up against jimmy carter, president obama would be unemployed right now. what do i think he wants to do? i think he wants to pursue his ideology. i don't think it's about economy. he told us what his ideology is. he told us, you didn't do that. i'm in the middle of silicon valley. we did that. we invented things. we changed the world. the way you and i are talking to each other coast to coast, we did that. it wasn't the government because they put in sidewalks and put stripes on the roads. but he believes that people -- that entrepreneurs and businesses don't do stuff. he believes the large, collective central organization, the government, is what does stuff. >> how do we get the free market back, t.j.? how do we get this whole great american economic country of ours back on the free market path? that's what i need to know. >> let me give you the bad answer. i think it's probably an accurate answer. we've had 12 years of economic mismanagement. this is not an obama/democrat problem. this is a bush/republican/obama/democrat problem. 12 years of bad economic managemen
. >> reporter: he resigned in the wake of watergate. ronald reagan's second term -- >> a few months ago, i told the american people i did not trade arms for hostages. my heart and my best intentions still tell me that's true, but the facts and evidence tell me it is not. >> reporter: the iran contra affair. bill clinton -- >> i did not have sexual relations with that woman. >> reporter: impeached after the lewinsky mess. and george w. bush, well, there was the valerie plame spygate scandal, not to mentioning the handling of hurricane katrina. that's trouble for roughly 100% of re-elected presidents since 1972. yes, it's enough to give you second thoughts about that second term. so is there anything the obama team can do to prevent this? now, as bill clinton might say. >> it depends upon what the meaning of the word "is" is. >> reporter: the fact is, if there is going to be a second-term scandal, its seeds were probably sewn in the first term. the watergate break-in, nixon's first term. the actual iran contra deal, reagan's first term. bill clinton's liaison with lewinsky, first term. the actual
in this is when you have on the table in terms of tax reform, entitlement reform would make ronald reagan look like a piker. so alan murray wrote the classic book on tax reform. he knows how hard it was, with some or very good people. >> [inaudible] [laughter] >> so the point is, in the fess fess -- fiscal cliff or in this period you're not going to get my of this done. joe lieberman outlined what would be a potential approach. you do some sort of cutting, maybe a little bit of some modest revenue, you then move back to regular order which trent lott was talking about last year, but then you need some mechanism like a simpson-bowles ii to enforce the discipline. my worry is, and this is where i disagree with austan. you read bob woodward's book and "the washington post" reporting and, frankly, the people doing the negotiating up there on both sides don't know something about the basics of negotiation, starting with the fact that you need one piece of paper that says here's what we agree on and here's what we don't agree on. so the bottom line if i were a ceo, what i'd be worried about is if th
. there is that incentive as well. you have to look at ronald reagan as well as henry kissinger, when they went into negotiations, said you have to come willing to truly cut a deal. you may get 90%. >> takes both sides. obama is very good in liberal rhetoric blaming republicans. even in "l.a. times", obama wants to help the middle class but republicans don't want to give everything to the rich which is not true. and a lot of liberals are saying this was a mandate to raise taxes? i think people can be pro-choice, pro-day marriage and have fiscal responsibility and live within their means. jon: well, i mean to be honest, angela, the president campaigned on a platform saying i'm going to go back to the bill clinton tax rates and the wealthiest are going to have to pay more money and he won. >> but bill clinton worked with a republican congress and our economy was not in dire straits that it is right now. so if he really wants to go back to the bill clinton days he should go to the table and work with republicans. >> also you have to look taxes were historical high. one of the things they're talkin
is the payback from party leaders? guest: there is change and then there is change. tip o'neill and ronald reagan got together and saved the program. sometimes you need to adjust to change the thing you care most about. tip o'neill did not sell off the democratic party by embracing that. if we do it in a responsible way that doesn't gut the program, i think the base of the party will understand. the alternative is doing nothing with bad damage to the economy, or the right wing of the republicans coming in and taking over and their answer to the solution would be much more draconian. host: jack in kentucky. caller: i have one question. can you guarantee -- guest: i thought you're going to ask why indiana university and kentucky and not playing basketball this year. for the first time they are now playing and we are rivals. i cannot talk about classified information on tv. things like stinger missiles are very problematic and we do everything we can to keep track of them. muammar gaddafi stockpiles of weapons, surface- to-air missiles and we're doing everything to track those down and secure them.
expect over the next few weeks. >> good morning, and i begin john -- ronald reagan national airport. as we look at the holiday fast approaching thanksgiving next week, we're apt -- anticipating a busy travel season and men and women of tsa are standing ready to provide the most effective security in the most efficient way. we are anticipating over 24 million passengers traveling during the thanks giving holiday period. as you know, that create challenges and opportunities for the traveling public. especially those who travel infrequent i are. part of the reason is to encourage the infrequent travelers to visit the tsa website to understands the screening security process that will help the others in line deal with the longers lines as we usually see. it's been a busy and productive year for tsa as we focus on developing and testing and implementing a number of what we call risk-based security initiatives. things that are enables us to provide the most effective security and efficient way. risk-based security or rbs in the passenger screening context allows the tso two of whom you wi
s, of considers under ronald reagan and george w. bush's tax rates in 2003. it's interesting, i found two universal effects of those tax cuts. first, in every instance we cut the rates, the economy worked faster. it did work, mr. president, we got a lot of growth. but the second may be more interesting, is that guess what happened to the share of taxes paid by the rich. they went up, in fact, if you want to get more money, mr. president, out of rich people, cut their tax rate, don't raise them, because history proves it. >> dave: certainly did in the reagan years and another peace in the wall street journal a couple back, clinton rates, raised top tier 39.6 and as the authors of that piece said produced the one period of shared prosperity not because they raised taxes, but certainly lead to growth, right? >> no question. the 1990's was a prosperous era, but i think that sometimes people get a little of that history wrong what happened in the 1990's, president clinton raised taxes in the first year in office and remember, the first two years in office were a catastrophe and in fa
